    Windows ten October update

    Hi I bought a Dell PowerEdge T30 a couple of years ago, and it's been great. However, it recently started bluescreening, and I assume its due to a new driver in the Windows ten October update. Note that I have a Dell T20 as well, which is unaffected. Both the T20 and T30 have identical Radeon...

    Draining the swamp?

    OK it wasn't a swamp, it was just a bit green. Yeesh, let me start again. So, my pool is a constant trial. The main problem is the tree next to it, which produces thousands of pulpy berries, they hang down in clusters around 8cm long and 3cm wide, and one on its own can immobilise a kreepy...

    SARS efiling browser compatibility

    Boosting my home network

    Hi I've had fibre for about 2 years, and frankly the out of the box experience seems to fail on the final 10%. The actual hardware I have probably just needs a small tweak in order to work a whole lot better. I have a Raycore RC-CP9 router plugged into the glass, from this, there was 2m of...
